Resolution, Shmezolution!

Another new year is upon us, and I have decided to return to blogging with my usual verve. BUT, I will not call my intent to blog on a more regular basis a "resolution". How about we just call it "making a promise to oneself"? Isn't a promise something you'll be more likely to keep?  I get it, the whole idea of accountability, letting other people know so that they can help keep you on track. I say that system is antiquated. I most definitely place more stock in what I promise to myself. I may share it with others (like you, the person reading this very post), but ultimately, I simply don't want to let MYSELF down. There are a lot of things that I hope to accomplish this year, and I know that it will only be possible with my personal commitment, dedication and hard work. So instead of a resolution, this year I will make promises to myself. In addition to promising to write more, I will finish my degree and get my teaching certification and as an act of self love, I promise to take myself on at least 15 dates! Yes, I said take myself on dates! I think we could all use self love every now and then! What are you promising yourself this year?
